The Black Velvet Necronomicon: Black Velvet Cthulhu is the first of a series of beautiful limited edition collectible books reproducing in vibrant full color the art of Mike Dubisch. The artist has created a series of uniquely otherworldly images in eerie subtle tints on black, envisioning the inhabitants of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu Mythos with a clarity unlike anything you've seen before.

Art and books WILL ship in time for CHRISTMAS!

"Like H.R. Giger in his landmark Necronomicon collection, Dubisch has assembled a surreal bestiary of chiaroscuro abominations... Using only colored pencils and gouache on black paper, he achieves a molten luminosity that holds a smoking mirror up to nature’s nightmares, so that each ebony page becomes a portal. The cult of Cthulhu has recently exploded in popular and corporate media, and is slowly being sucked dry of its cardinal mystery. Dragged into the mainstream spotlight ... the Great Old Ones have seemingly lost the capacity to disturb... With these chthonic Madonnas and divine, invertebrate children, the Great Old Ones are restored their rightful measure of awe and cosmic wonder ... " Author Cody Goodfellow, from his introduction
